Royal Roundup: Glamorous William and Kate Step Out at Epsom Derby
And as expected, the royal newlyweds were dressed to impress as they, Prince Harry, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and other select members of the royal family cheered on Queen Elizabeth II‘s prized colt, Carlton House, to a third-place finish.
While the Duke of Cambridge donned tails and a top hat, the Duchess looked radiant in Reiss; her off-white knee-length dress was accompanied by a white tweed jacket by Nessie and nude heels. Her shiny brunette tresses were stylishly swept back into a bun, while a taupe-colored fascinator rumored to be from the Philip Treacy collection beautifully completed her look.
